Looking for crew - Barra de Navidad, Mexico to Panama (or further)

Hello. Our timeline is not fully developed yet, but we will be looking for one additional crew member toward the end of February. We have no preference to male or female, and age (within reason, at both spectrums) is not real important either.

Our itinerary will definitely be cruising based, not delivery based, so the ideal person would be someone without a real schedule. The boat is a well-equipped and well-maintained 52' ketch. All necessary safety items are in place, i.e. Flares, EPIRB, Offshore Liferaft, SatCom, Submersion Suits (I know, right?), etc. We also have some niceties such as icemaker, paddleboards, snorkel gear, hookah (SCUBA, silly), fishing gear, watermaker, washer/dryer, BBQ, etc. We carry 500 gallons of water, and 500 gallons of fuel - so we don't typically bob around when there's no wind, and you'll never get scolded for a long shower...haha.

This is a volunteer position but all food and drink (within reason) will be paid. We will also pay return airfare from a major international airport to another major international airport. The only expenses you would be responsible for are travel to the boat and any personal expenses or souvenirs.

We plan on a mixture of anchoring and marina stays, and we are flexible in regards to how much time is spent at any given spot - so if you love it, and we love it, we might stay a little while.

Light drinking onboard (not on watch, obviously) and smoking outdoors are fine, but no drugs - sorry not even MJ, too risky for legal reasons.

Experience is not as important as attitude, but at least a little exposure to sailing would be great. This is not a difficult passage, so we are not expecting much more out of someone other than standing a watch and having a fun time.

If interested, please contact via PM for more information.

Hi Raven Odtssey,

I am very interested in the crewing position, I have lots of experience and consider myself easy to get along with etc.

Will you be doing a Pacific Ocean crossing (milk run) at some point?

Have sent you a private message.

Warm Regards,
Anthony.

Yes, we will be doing another Pacific crossing, but not this time around. I'll have a look at your message and be in touch soon.

Re: Looking for crew - Barra de Navidad, Mexico to Panama (or further)

Hi Neil and Tally.
You got a Nauticat ketch, my favorite brand of boat that I could never effort! And, it is blue, my favorite color. I consulted your blog. Well done. Good pics.
I invite you to consult my background under Captain Denis, then About me and then About Captain Denis. You will see that I can do much more than night watches. What you started doing 2 years ago, I did as well much before that.
I am a Canadian snowbird spending this winter in Cancun, Mexico until the end of February. Since I sold Aventura, I miss the nautical life and I offer my services to boat owners not really for the money but for the lifestyle. By the way, yes I know a good bar in Orangestad. It is called the Eetcafe The Paddock right on the pier of the small downtown harbor where you can tie your dinghy. I spent two months at anchor outside of the harbor in front of the airport runaway. My Mexican number is (52) 998 153 4286. I will contact you again at your E-mail address. Say hello to the rest of the crew Jan, Swab and Albatros.

Hello from Oz'tralia. I commend you on your approach to cruising. I'm independent and quite interested. Please be in touch by personal message. I can fly in and out as needed. Cheers, A.

Looking for crew - Barra de Navidad, Mexico to Panama (or further)

Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest in our little "Odyssey". Unfortunately, I have a family emergency that requires my immediate attention. I'll be flying back "home" for a few days, or maybe a few weeks. Sorry to be so vague, I wish I knew more myself.

Based on what I've seen in the last few days, I'm sure my PM mailbox is going to exceed the 50 message limit before I can respond to everyone. I'm not sure it's appropriate, or allowed, on this forum but I'm going to give it a shot...and I have a good filter, so I'm not too worried about bots.

If you are interested in learning more, please email me at: raven-at-sea@outlook.com. (Moderators, sorry if giving personal email addresses is not allowed)

I'll have a better idea of itinerary and dates once I return. Thanks!

Dear Raven Odessy. If you are genuine this would be a good time to advise me and all other CF folk. I am OK to fly around the world, But I won't do it on a frauld by electronic comms. Best wishes A.

I assure you. I am quite genuine. I don't really know how to prove it to you, so you'll just have to take my word for it for now.

I'm dealing with a family emergency at the moment, so I don't have a whole lot of time to play games. If you would like more information, feel free to email me at the address I gave previously.
